Apple In what everybody already saw coming for weeks (months) now, Apple has just unveiled its latest product, a tablet called the iPad. Basically a bigger version of the iPhone, Steve Jobs presented the iPad during a press event in San Francisco. The most interesting news? It's powered by... An Apple processor, called the A4. The most shocking news? The price.

It seems like Apple's traditional dream

The dream is, we will have our own proprietary processor that no-one else uses. This will make it almost impossible to port our OS or apps to any other device. Then, we will control all the apps that are loaded onto our device, by making everyone go through the app store. Then, we'll compel use of iTunes to buy any media or apps. Finally we will cover the thing with proprietary connectors. And we will cover our media with proprietary DRM so you can't buy from anyplace else, or take your stuff you buy from us to any other platform.

And you will all stand and salute the insanely great!
